After releasing DirectoryEngine, we’ve received some good remarks as well as comments on some problems about the theme. As we’ve always said “better and better”, all those precious feedbacks have been noted and will be considered for future versions.

For today, we’re happy to introduce the latest update after DE took its first step: introducing DirectoryEngine version 1.0.1.

1. More Sidebars. Revolution Slider Added.

Haven’t been satisfied with the number of sidebars in v1.0? Here are more for you! DE v1.0.1 offers you two additional ones: Top full-width sidebar and Bottom full-width sidebar.

Besides, the latest version also add the support for Revolution Slider. Admins now can use the new widget to either display a map or a slider, whichever makes their site more appealing to the users.

2. Highlight a place listing with a video

With v1.0.1, users can upload a video when editing a place. The uploaded video will be displayed on the header of the place listing page then, and of course this will make the place become more attractive and professional.

3. Default location for the map

Admins are now allowed to set up the default location for the map, which will appear to users when they visit the site. No matter which spot, admin can easily select and set it up as the default location right from the back – end.

4. Changes in “post–a–place” form

In v1.0, in order to enhance the simplicity, we didn’t include some fields in the place submission form. However, after receiving feedbacks from our dear customers, it seem to be easier for users to complete all place information right in the posting process. This has been changed in v1.0.1 and now included more fields such as: Phone, Website, Open time, Open days.

5. Reset-password page

With this update, whenever users forget their passwords, they can easily get them back right in the login page.

7. Change email subjects sent to users

With v1.0.1, the email’s subject sent to users is more specific so that they aren’t mistaken with spams.

8. Notifications when signing up

Whenever users sign up with an existing email address, a notification message will appear to request for another one.

9. Fix notification error when posting place

When users miss a field in the “post-a-place” form, a notification will appear reminding them to complete all the needed fields.

10. Other bug fixes

In v1.0, when users edit a place, even they don’t make any change to the location, the chosen location is still lost. The bug is now fixed, the system won’t automatically change your location anymore.
